Title IX Nondiscrimination

Title IX/Sexual Misconduct

In accordance with Title IX, 34 CFR Part 106, and university standards, High Point University is committed to operating educational programs and activities that are free from sex-based and gender-based discrimination and sexual misconduct. This mission also extends to admissions and employment. HPU takes all allegations of sex-based and gender-based discrimination and sexual misconduct seriously. We welcome your involvement in fostering a campus community that strives to prevent sex-based and gender-based discrimination and sexual misconduct in all their forms and to compassionately respond to and support the parties involved.

The university’s Title IX Coordinator is responsible for the administration and coordination of High Point University’s Title IX-related policies, programs, and compliance efforts. The scope of these responsibilities includes, among other things, oversight of complaint resolution, resources, communications, and training in connection with Title IX’s prohibition of discrimination based upon sex and gender. The Title IX Coordinator can answer questions and address any concerns about Title IX, 34 CFR Part 106, and university policies prohibiting other forms of sexual misconduct. Inquiries about the application of Title IX and 34 CFR Part 106 may also be referred to the Assistant Secretary at the Office for Civil Rights (U.S. Department of Agriculture, 1400 Independence Avenue, SW, Washington, DC 20250, Mail Stop 0115, phone: (202) 720-3808).
